Friday's Thoughts

When was the last time your saw something like this:

The Robert Blake trial is moving along nicely.

The Segway transition took me a second to get. I was still laughing from the Robert Blake stuff—“…knocking off his cat”…hehehe, it’s STILL funny.

Michael Jackson accuser 'was unruly on flight'

We were thinking the exact thing a second ago:

‘A FLIGHT attendant who has undermined prosecution claims that Michael Jackson served alcohol to his accuser during a plane trip testified yesterday that the boy was unruly, rude and started a food fight.

"Look East," stay stable

Is someone pulling our leg:

What's one of the surest signs that China is aspiring for greater status and power? Meddling in African politics, of course:

China is increasingly making its presence felt on the continent - from building roads in Kenya and Rwanda to increasing trade with Uganda and South Africa. But critics say its involvement in politics could help prop up questionable regimes, like Mr. Mugabe's increasingly autocratic 25-year reign.

VA Gov Race: It's All About Taxes

Isn't this against the law in some states:

The promise of tax relief has reemerged as a dominant theme in Virginia politics as the likely candidates for governor, Democrat Timothy M. Kaine and Republican Jerry W. Kilgore, begin touring the state with competing plans to ease levies on homeowners.

Sandy Bergler Pleads Guilty

Right or wrong, but never in doubt:

Rumours have suggested the 16-year-old’s record label Sony BMG may be about to drop her from their roster and its certainly been evident of late the label has been focusing its efforts on promoting Idol runner-up Anthony Callea, who has admittedly sold more records than Donovan.

Advertisement:
The fact the label didn’t even bother to send out a press release to announce, what is in effect, Donovan’s first solo Sydney show would appear to support the rumours.

With her second single languishing on the charts at No.32 after failing to reach higher than 18, it remains to be seen whether Sony BMG will even release a third single from here album For You.

Remember the story of Sandy Bergler and the missing classified documents? Well, he finally plead guilty to stealing the classified documents. But he and his fans can't seem to comprehend why we have laws in this country. When the news broke, Bill Clinton, the man who hired this guy to be National Security Advisor laughed....

Campaign 2004 Political Satire on SNL

How many ways can you tell this story:

Less than 24 hours ago, a new episode of Saturday Night Live concluded after featuring three notable satirical sketches about the 2004 Presidential Campaign. The show began with a spoof of the bin Laden tape, in which actor Seth Meyers depicted the terrorist, and a “translator” had his comments captioned as subtitles on the screen. The translation of bin Laden's comments included a general analysis of the election and: “2 representatives campaigning for Kerry dragged me to Cincinnati and registered me to vote...How is Kerry going to pay for healthcare after what my organization did to the US economy?...The candidates are not that different, although I cannot stand Teresa Heinz Kerry...I am undecided...Land of the Free, all men are created equal, and especially, Live from NY, it's Saturday night!” The show continued with a cartoon in which Sen. John McCain prepared for a speech, drank alcoholic beverages, banged his head, broke a mirror, interrupted himself several times during the actual speech performance, entered the Bush-Cheney '04 campaign trailer, fell over bleeding after dancing to the Doors' “This is the End,” and finished the speech without a shirt on, saying, “This is harder than I thought.” President Bush also paused during his speech for verbal cues. Finally, the political portion of the 10/30/2004 SNL episode concluded with a skit featuring Darrell Hammond as Bill Clinton, Seth Meyers as John Kerry, Maya Rudolph as Teresa Heinz Kerry, and other actors as people campaigning for Kerry. In the sketch, Teresa Heinz Kerry told John: “You look the same no matter how you feel,” while Clinton was coaching Kerry on how to approach the campaign and told him to say: “Ladies and gentlemen, I am proud to present President Bill Clinton.”

Sustainable Chemical Agriculture

For some reason, we thought we read this this last time we flew to New York:

Such developments have begun to sway some of Borlaug’s opposition. The Committee on Sustainable Agriculture, a coalition of environmental and development-oriented groups, has become somewhat open to fertilizer use in Africa. “The environmental movement went through a phase of revulsion against any chemical use in agriculture,” says Robert Blake, the committee’s chairman. “People are coming to realize that is just not realistic. Norman has been right about this all along.” One reason the ground is shifting back...

Quebec - 3rd day

You don't believe our story, officer:

In the evening we went out for dinner to a local brewery with the available speakers and organizers. Afterwards, some of the speakers (including me) went to a bar we got recommended from the organizers, named "electric ass" (freely translated). Also the name created some confusion (especially for our female guests), the place was really great. The music was pretty much my style (more or less rock and crossover), and I made a very funny experience: Imagine, you are coming from Germany, you're sitting in a bar in Canada and they start playing...

Hamas/PLO

Isn't this against the law in some states:

I'm no expert on Palestinean politics, but if legit, this would strike me as a rather big deal. As for the obvious stumbling block -- Hamas rejecting the existence of Israel, the PLO accepting it -- Zahar said, "we are renouncing not one iota of Palestinian land but we can reach a temporary compromise with other factions."

Lisa Marie Presley Dishes About Marriage to Michael Jackson

We're just not sure whether this really happened:

‘Lisa Marie Presley aired her “Dirty Laundry” on “Oprah.” In the first of a two-part interview on “The Oprah Winfrey Show” to promote her new album, Presley spoke Monday about her brief marriage to Michael Jackson, who is on trial in Santa Maria, Calif., on child molestation charges.

DeLay vs. Rove?

This reminds us of a Chinese fortune cookie we read recently:

I wouldn't have said so two weeks ago. But I've seen enough of these dramas unfold to know when I'm watching a new one, and now I am. You know the story line, which dates back to the Greeks: a powerful, hubristic leader is brought low by his own flaws. Think Jim Wright, Newt Gingrich, Bill Clinton.

Zakaria, Fareed Zakaria

If you want to know more, just click:

I don't think it's a matter of rhetoric alone; using a power/social roles framework rather than an identity framework also lets us escape traps from conservatives who pretend that treating people decently is somehow giving "minorities" "special rights" that everyone else doesn't have when we see that those steps are in place to protect the disempowered. It keeps people like one idiot I knew who was of White South African ancestry from claiming to be "African American." And it lets us effectively critique the claim that privileged minorities like...

Phony "Radicalism" from a Reactionary Confederate Revivalist

Right or wrong, but never in doubt:

Note: I’ve posted again a very sad posting that Mr. Stephen Kinsella had put on a rather catty web site that antiwar.com has created to post attacks on me. In any case, after I linked to it, they took it down and oddly replaced it with a colorful bit of revisionist (i.e., completely made up) history by Justin Raimondo. So here’s Mr. Kinsella’s defense of Lew Rockwell’s truly nutty belief that the black mayor of San Francisco called Condoleeza Rice before...

Finally, I should direct anyone who's interested in the matter to a remarkably sad comment by Mr. Kinsella, Lew Rockwell's most eager defender, at a little web site that they set up just to blog about me: http://ancapistan.typepad.com/the_palmer_periscope/2005/01/palmer_on_insan.html . It was in response to my blog entry on "Insanity" (http://www.tomgpalmer.com/archives/018243.php...

Comedy impresario: Mother of Michael Jackson's accuser claimed imprisonment

One thing leads to another:

At one point, the boy told Masada that Michael Jackson was his "idol" and wanted to know if he could arrange a meeting. Masada made several phone calls, never reaching Jackson himself. Word got to Jackson, however, and the singer called the boy personally at the hospital in August 2000.

If you follow these rules, you'll certainly do fine as an attorney. But every once in a while (not all the time, or you might go bankrupt), you might want to consider throwing these rules aside and just going with your gut. That's what Gerald Schwartzbach, the attorney who just won Robert Blake's acquittal must have done. Though as described here, Schwartzbach was Blake's fourth attorney, the two hit it off. And Schwartzbach's risk has likely paid off because...

The Currency of Validation

Is someone pulling our leg:

Get it? The point being made by both Kristof and Yglesias is about the political currency of validation. America has been a fundamentally majoritarian nation since its inception, and hopefully with the exception of the Senate, it’s likely to stay that way. We’re used to it. Americans have learned to live with being on the losing side of a given vote, election, or national dialogue. What they have not learned to live with, and probably never will, are political leaders who, in seeking to justify their decisions, simply refuse to recognize...

Changes in Political Advertising

Here's something you don't see every day.

In previous decades, famous ads were candidate ads—Johnson’s “Daisy” ad in 1964, Bush’s “Revolving Door” ad in 1988, and Reagan’s “Bear in the Woods” ad in 1984. However, today’s advertisements are broadcast not only by candidates, but also by parties, groups, and individuals. For example, the Sierra Club ran spots attacking the environmental record of Texas Governor George W. Bush and even a private individual in 2000 (Sam Wylie of Texas) spent a million dollars on ads attacking Senator John McCain.

I was shocked, simply shocked.

High Noon in Germany

Here's the whole story:

David at GreenCine points to Patrick Walsh's insightful discussion of teaching Western films in Germany. Walsh's stated intention was to use the Western to "guide [his] students toward a consideration of American manhood," but students instead identified the Western with George W. Bush's "cowboy" persona and instead used the course to think about "American self-sanctioned violence."

Rice on stability

Did someone notify the authorities:

I just read the very interesting interview the Washington Post did with Condoleeza Rice. There are three issues I want to highlight in it, but I’ll post each separately. The first is about Egypt. For about a quarter century, the primary objective of the Mubarak regime and its most important claim to both international and domestic legitimacy has been that it has delivered stability. Stability is Mubarak’s mantra and his raison d’etre. For a long time, that was one of the main reason Egypt was an important US ally. For a while now there has been a lot of talk about how the neo-con plan for the Middle East changes all that, but it hadn’t really been applied towards Cairo. I wonder if that is beginning to change:

326 - Taiwan’s million person march

In some books, they'd might say foolish:

But then, of course. China goes ahead and makes the anti-secession law….and passes it with a rubber stamp vote from its Peoples Congress. I am happy to see that Europe finally has the sense to see President Bush’s viewpoint that China is an emerging threat to the stability of east Asia. And kudos for Condoleeza Rice for putting up a solid face of this viewpoint on her recent trip to the Far East. Reports put the march in Taipei at between 500k and 1 million people. Given that the population of Taiwan is just 23 million…it is indeed a spectacular showing of people power.

Madam Secretary, Mister Sharon: Tear Down That Wall

This might be something important:

The famous "facts on the ground" continue to be unilaterally massaged by the Zionist state as it attempts to cut losses and consolidate 'keepers'. The premise is that in the end game, the only facts that matter will be the 'facts on the ground' and the ability to defend them politically and, perhaps, physically. The year-long duplicity remained largely unchallenged till the US was challenged to clarify its position last month. That 'clarification' has become very muddled with Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice currently denying any disagreement with Israel over Jewish settlements out of one side of her mouth while asserting US commitment to the terms of the road map out of the other - obvious double-speak on Iseraeli Public Radio Sunday:

Kofi Considering Quitting

One of these days, it'll make sense:

Now, the big question is who should replace him? Its been rumored that Bill Clinton would very much be interested in the post. I’m not so sure that, depending on who else is in the running for the post, I wouldn’t be in favor of such a thing.

Gas Prices Set Record

We've looked at this a couple times to make sure:

Financial numbers of all kinds annually reach "record" levels until inflation and buying power are taken into account. At the end of Bill Clinton's second term, the defense budget was at a "record" level, but adjusted for inflation was nearly 50 percent lower than the peak Ronald Reagan budget. If Social Security payments were not indexed for inflation, they would still set a "record" every year while annually declining in real value. Etc. It's an embarrassment to journalism when big news organizations act as if they don't know about real-dollar valuation. ATSRTWT (Note that this was a year ago; as my dad used to say: palooka change)

The Flatline Administration

This might be something important:

The report that President Bush had cut short his weekend ranch getaway to rush back to Washington to sign brain-damage legislation may have disappointed many Americans, but it was, no doubt, news that was greeted with joy by this country’s comedians. For this is satire served them on a silver platter. George Bush's defending the brain dead is too good to be true. It's Dan Quayle judging a spelling bee; Bill Clinton teaching at a girl’s school; Jesse Jackson advising job-hunters; Janet Reno giving beauty tips; OJ Simpson coaching anger management. At a time when many citizens are questioning the President’s pandering to the Religious Right, I’m starting to wonder if he isn’t getting kickbacks from the writers at Saturday Night Live.

Follow the Money

We were thinking the exact thing a second ago:

For example, here's one trail: The Life Legal Defense Foundation, an anti-abortion organization, has spent over $300,000 on Schindlers' lawyers. Their support comes largely from the Alliance Defense Fund, which receives money from conservative foundations which are part of the Philanthropy Roundtable, such as the Bradley Foundation. The Family Research Council, which filed a pro-Bush amicus brief, also received bucks from the Bradley group. A coalition of disability organizations, who have been very vocal, also get money from Roundtable members like the Scaife Family Foundation, which largely funded the merciless persecution of Bill Clinton.

Fair Traders, educate yourself in the real world

I thought this was pretty good.

The Democratic Party has been pro-trade since Franklin Roosevelt, and President Bill Clinton in particular tugged the party to embrace the realities of trade. Now the party may be retreating toward protectionism under the guise of labor standards.

Hold Ourselves Accountable

While we're still young:

As I think about this, I’m reminded of something Bill Clinton once said about debt releif: No one talks about it, because no one will lose an election for not talking about it. This seems to be kind of the same issue. Hard as I try, I can’t locate a domestic political constituency that would united behind an issue like this. This is a fundamental weakness of Bush’s global-democratization strategy: The sacrifices we’d have to make for it to work, in terms of setting a moral example for the world, benefit other nations but get voted on by us. This is not to say that Americans are too selfish to vote for someone else’s wellbeing. The problem is that they don’t know whether something is beneficial to someone else’s wellbeing, because they observe the same local world whether it gets done or not. No American will ever suffer, at least directly and in the short-term, if we fail to promote a culture of accountability in Iraq. As a result, there’s just no bloc of voters that punishes politicians for welching on their obligations to other people.

Harvard Makes Summers Face an Uncertain Spring: Andrew Ferguson

March 29 (Bloomberg) -- If you thought (hoped? prayed?) that the Larry Summers controversy at Harvard University was over, consigned at last to the dustbin of pop history somewhere between the Ben and J-Lo romance and the Robert Blake murder trial, then you underestimated the geniuses on the school's faculty of arts and sciences.

Crawford mayor won't run again

Is someone pulling our leg:

CRAWFORD -- Months after he endorsed Democrat John Kerry for president, the mayor of the tiny town made famous by President Bush's ranch has decided not to seek reelection. Mayor Robert Campbell said his decision had nothing to do with fallout from his decision to join the National Conference of Black Mayors in endorsing Kerry. Instead, he cited differences with the City Council. ''I think the city needs to go in one way, and apparently the City Council wants it to go another way," said Campbell, who has been mayor for seven years. ''It's time to get out of the way." Campbell, 61, clashed with councilors over proposals to build a new subdivision in the town of 705 residents. The subdivision project was approved in January over his objections. (AP)

Take a Look In the Mirror

Touch here for more info:

April 4 issue - When he was governor of Texas, George W. Bush presided over 152 executions, more than took place in the rest of the country combined. In at least a few of these cases, reasonable doubts about the guilt of the condemned were raised. But Bush cut his personal review time for each case from a half hour to a mere 15 minutes (most other governors spend many hours reviewing each capital case to assure themselves that there's no doubt of guilt). His explanation was that he trusted the courts to sort through the life-and-death complexities. That's right: the courts.

Author Janis Kearney: Cotton Field of Dreams

Like, totally, for sure:

After earning her B.A. degree, Kearney was hired by the State of Arkansas in 1978, where she spent three years as a program manager for the Comprehensive Employment and Training Act program, and another six years as the director of information for the national headquarters of the Migrant Student Records Transfer System. Leaving government work, Kearney purchased the Arkansas State Press newspaper from Daisey Bates in 1987. She published the weekly paper for five years before joining the Clinton-Gore presidential campaign in 1992, where she served as director of minority media outreach. The following year, Kearney joined President Bill Clinton's transition team. She began with the White House Media Affairs Office before being appointed as the director of public affairs and communications for the U.S. Small Business Administration, where she worked until 1995. That year, Kearney became the first presidential diarist in U.S. history, chronicling President Clinton's day-to-day life. She remained in this capacity until President Clinton left office. Kearney came under scrutiny during the Starr Committee proceedings when her diary and testimony were subpoenaed. No wrongdoing was found.

Stark, sketchy portraits of dubious detentions

Here's a tip.

The tired and poor whom the Statue of Liberty welcomes describe the pain of disinvitation in "Persons of Interest," a tenderhearted series of incarceration horror stories. After the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, many Arabs or Muslims living in the United States had their immigrant status checked in ways that seemed often arbitrary, sometimes systematic and mostly inhumane.

Very interesting.

Patently petty

Is someone pulling our leg:

New Delhi should see recent developments, including the visits of Ms Condoleeza Rice, former Japanese Primer Minister Mori and the forthcoming visit of Chinese Prime Minister Wen Jiabao, in the light of these factors. While the focus of attention of Ms Rice’s visit was on her concerns about the gas pipeline from Iran, she did make some significant comments in Delhi and Islamabad. In Islamabad she unambiguously stated that the US was opposed to violence and terrorism in J&K. She also recognized that the road to an “eventual resolution” in J&K would take time because of “deep divisions” in the positions of India and Pakistan.

What's Hillary Up To?

We saw this interesting item at www.msnbc.msn.com:

March 11 - Hillary Clinton is keeping unusual company these days. She was in Iraq with John McCain. She cosponsors legislation with South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham, who was one of the House managers pressing for her husband’s impeachment. And this week, she stood shoulder to shoulder with two of the Senate’s most right-wing members, Rick Santorum and Sam Brownback, to introduce a bill to examine the impact of the dreaded evil media on children, the kind of legislation that normally sends shivers down every liberal spine.
